While there are a few nuances of our faiths that are different, I deeply respect Bill Hybels, especially his thinking on the importance of leading the local church well. Below is a list of books Hybels compiled. These are books he suggests people read to hone their leadership thinking and abilities in a variety of areas. I’ll highlight in Red those that I have read completely, and in Blue those I have read sections or excerpts.
